(Worthy News) - Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu's one-vote majority coalition government faced its first defeat in the Knesset on Monday after the opposition was able to prevent an amendment to the Israel Lands Law from passing, after going back on an agreement made ahead of the vote.

After failing to pass the amendment, the coalition removed all bill proposals that were up for a vote on Monday and cancelled the rest of the plenum session.

The government has been left with a one-vote majority after Yisrael Beytenu leader Avigdor Lieberman resigned from his post as defense minister last week and withdrew his party from the government. [ Source: Ynet News (Read More...) ]
